We can help with
  • Drafting of employment contracts

    We draft individualised employment contracts and model contracts for the employees of many companies. We draw up remuneration models such as bonus agreements or employee participation models for start-ups, arrangements for flexible working hours, home office agreements, bring-your-own-device contracts or company car provision contracts.

  • Corporate Restructuring

    If a company or part of a company has to be closed or relocated, we develop strategies for the practical implementation of employment law. If necessary, we supervise downsizing or relocation of employees and, if necessary, prepare mass dismissal notifications for the Federal Employment Agency.

  • Due diligence procedure

    We advise on the purchase of companies or company assets by preparing due diligence reports under employment and collective bargaining law and drafting contractual clauses for the employment law aspects of company purchase agreements.

  • Litigation before employment and industrial tribunals

    One of our core competencies is the representation of our clients throughout Germany before the employment tribunals, regional employment courts and the Federal Employment Court in all court proceedings, in particular in dismissal protection litigation, actions for termination of employment and compensation and anti-discrimination litigation.

  • Temporary Employment

    One main focus of our activities is the representation of temporary employment agencies in the field of temporary employment and personnel placement. In particular, we apply for AÜG (employment leasing agreements) permits, draft temporary employment contracts with hirers or employment contracts for temporary workers and assert our clients’ claims in court.

  • Drafting of works agreements and negotiations with the works council

    In the context of issues relating to works constitution law, we draft works agreements, conduct negotiations with the works council and represent employers in the arbitration proceedings.

  • Advice for the HR departments

    We regularly advise HR departments on a variety of employment law issues such as on- and off-boarding of employees, drafting of contracts, preparation and implementation of dismissals and warnings, introduction of new processes such as working time accounts, monitoring measures of the workforce or compliance issues.

  • Representation of executives

    We advise and negotiate the contractual arrangements for the employment of board members and managing directors, but also in severance situations, or the processing of such contracts through termination agreements.

  • Social Security Fund for Artists

    We advise users on all questions concerning the artists’ social security fund.

     

  • In- and outsourcing projects

    When relocating or merging operating units, we support their legal implementation.

  • Data and identity protection at work

    This practical handbook provides a valuable, systematic overview of the sensitive issue of employee data protection. Taking into account the current legal situation, it answers open questions and shows possible solutions in cases of doubt. In a separate section, special questions on works councils and data protection, international data transfer, data protection within corporations, outsourcing of services as well as implications under criminal law are also clarified. In view of the new DSGVO and the new version of the BDSG, this handbook provides a valuable, systematic overview of the unresolved problems and open questions.
